San Francisco’s famous Anchor Porter brand is made in one of the smallest and most traditional breweries in the world by the brewers of Anchor Steam Beer. Our old-fashioned Porter is virtually handmade, with an exceptional respect for the ancient art of brewing. We use 100% malted barley, generous amounts of fresh, whole hops, entirely natural carbonation and a simple, natural brewing process which is like no other in the world. The deep black color, the thick, creamy head and the intensely rich flavor of Anchor Porter, made in San Francisco since 1974, have earned this delicious and unique brew a worldwide reputation for outstanding quality. It is aesthetically pleasing and wholly superior in every respect.

This is probably the best porter I’ve tasted. Pours a very dark brown it a decent head. Great malt taste, background of coffee, bitter, smoked. No bitter or hoppy aftertaste, super smooth.

jamaty (1160) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Negra profunda, opaca. Bonita espuma ocre, muy cremosa y con forma, abundante. Aroma complejo, café, malta tostada.. Muy cremosa en boca y agradable. Cuerpo moderado y carbonatación media. Inicio dulce y frutal que va evolucionando a un amargor marcado y seco de café, dejando un postgusto muy duradero en el que en medio de un fuerte amargor recuerda de nuevo tonos dulces. Muy buena.

trotwood (46) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Appearance, aroma and taste characteristic of a Baltic Porter, but parameters (BLG&alc) typical for a regular ale-style Brown Porter. Magic.

ganz ordentlich -im antrunk karamell,toffee,Rosinen -für ein porter recht große mittel-bittere hopfennote -wenig kohlensäure -wenig ausgeprägte röstige kaffeenote -wässrig,hopfig und kaffee im abgang Bedeutend süßer als andere Porter. Die Hopfennote war etwas zu stark für den stil.
